Perimenopause through to Post Menopause

perimenopause and post menopause help in selby, ilkley north yorksire

The perimenopause can sometimes last up to 10 years before the menopause, and once we hit the day we are 12 months without a period, we will be postmenopausal from then on.

It can be quite a scary and unsettling time with so many symptoms that can be experienced - including low mood, heightened anxiety levels, ‘brain fog’, paranoia, disturbed sleep or insomnia, hot flushes, finding it harder to lose weight, less energy, issues with memory, lack of enthusiasm in things you used to enjoy, and a whole lot more - the list just goes on. I believe in the saying ‘knowledge is power’ and I am armed with the knowledge to help us understand what is happening in our bodies, and how to help manage or lessen the symptoms to enable you to feel like you again.

Improved Exercise Performance

Exercise performance can be anything from being able to run your first 5km (3mile) race or, as an accomplished exerciser, completing another Triathlon or Marathon and achieving your personal best time.

For either client your goals are important to me and I will tailor a personal training programme for you. This will include our sessions, a program to do during the week when you are not with me which compliments what we do together and will look at not just cardiovascular fitness but also muscle strength and core training to ensure you can make the most of your improving heart and lung fitness to get you across the line in your best time.

I have trained clients to complete endurance treks abroad, large endurance cycling events, triathlons, marathons etc and also helped clients run their first 5km race. Whatever your challenge, we will work together so you can achieve it.

For an example of what it possible see my testimonial page; clients who originally came to me wanting to lose weight and generally improve their fitness for daily life. They immersed themselves in my advice, our sessions and the programs I gave them and ended up completing a challenge they never thought possible and then having got the fitness bug decided to take on further fitness goals. You really can achieve more than you think with the right advice and support if you want it.

Pilates One to One

pilates classes in selby

In Pilates it is believed that all movement comes from a strong centre 'core', which can be called the 'powerhouse'. Every exercise in Pilates is controlled by the contraction of the deep abdominal muscles and aims to strengthen these muscles.

This can alleviate back pain but it is also important for everyone. For example, if you want toned slender arms or build your biceps but don't have a good core strength then you will not be training to your full potential and are more likely to injure yourself. I include Pilates and Core Training within my Training but I am also able to provide Pilates only sessions on a one to one basis.

Exercise for the Management of Low Back Pain

Approx 80% of the population experiences low back pain. Sometimes it can be caused due to a bulging disc, sometimes it is due to weak core muscles and incorrect posture and sometimes it is classed as unspecific where there isn't an apparent structural problem or issue yet the individual is still experiencing pain and discomfort. If any of this sounds like you then don't despair, there is potentially huge improvements you can achieve with a Personal Trainer.

See Rebecca's testimonial to see how I helped her unspecific back pain and what can be achieved.
